    Any reputable gun store may carry the parts you need. Have you tried Final Option? Expect to shell out P 5,000 to P 10,00o on the sights.

    The problem with buying locally is you don't know how long that has been in the shelf. I do believe that those luminous sight have a shelf life but don't take my word for it.

    try urban at shangrila edsa. iirc, night sights glow due to tritium gas which has a shelf life of 12 years

    Actually, half-life of 12 years for the tritium in green. Other colors have lower half-lives. This means the brightness will be half as bright as it was first installed after 12 years. ;)

    The trijicons have a date of manufacture stamped on their sights. I'm not sure of the meps or the others.

    Of course, the radiation "half"-life means that only ONE of your balls will be irradiated by the tritium for 12 years; then only one-half of that particular ball (meaning one-fourth of your total complement, if you are normal) for the subsequent 12 years; then only....

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    so i was shopping for some office supplies the other day, when i saw this stick of "glow in the dark" goo paint in neon green, rememebering how the white and yellow dots on my 1911 are practically gone, i bought a tube of this green stuff (50 pesos).

    hehe, now i have really cheap *** night sights, i don't expect it to withstand more than a few rounds but hehe, ok lang.

    it ain't that bright but it does allow me to line up the sights even in total darkness...it does need to be exposed to some light prior to using it in darkness.

    well, it's cheap.

    No modifications to the slide needed. Pukpok at loctite lang ang katumbas nyan kung malakas ang loob mo tulad nina McO. ;f
